Notes:
A compilation album originally made for various export markets, called "X∞Multiplies", a combination of remixed tracks from the Japanese mini-album and Solid State Survivor (which was not widely released outside of Japan). US Test pressings exist of this version titled "Solid State Survivor" but the track listing and matrixes match this compilation.

Confusingly, this US compilation album was later released in Japan in 1980 (obi features the transliteration of "Multiplies" -「マルティプライズ」) and mentions in Japanese that it is a "North American Compilation". Due to this, only the US version has seen CD re-issues out of all export versions.

Only the compilation releases of X∞Multiplies releases include the tracks "Rydeen" and "Day Tripper". Some pressings of this compilation also include the US single mix of "Tighten Up", not always noted on the sleeve or labels.

Please note there is a separate master release for the original mini-album and the UK/Dutch releases (which have more tracks from the mini-album in the same mixes) and subsequent CD reissues. Please check both master releases before submission.
The mini-album and UK/Dutch versions can be found under the Yellow Magic Orchestra - 増殖 X∞Multiplies master release.

The Japanese liner notes should be written by Tomoyuki Tanaka (田中知之) AKA Fantastic Plastic Machine according to Wikipedia. Could someone confirm this? Also if someone takes a scan of the entire liner notes, I'll be eternally grateful!

A&M retailer material from June 1980 calls this album "Solid State Survivor" and shows a cover design similar to the Japanese "Rydeen" single.
